Interesting stuff! Also would be nice to get a deeper explanation on how this works!

I'll have a read of the paper and try to understand what they did :punch:

I had a quick browse at lunch time, and it was pretty tough going. I don't know anything about the field really. As far as I can tell, they are doing it to try to use it as a storage medium I think... so you basically trap the light inside the material to store it to be looked at later. Sounds interesting, but I'd need to spend a lot more time to see exactly how it works.

It just boggles my mind that you can trap light! So the energy goes to the other particles, but as soon as the photon is allowed to move, the energy is returned? Its amazing that the energy doesn't transform anything... basically, its all amazing.

The only question was who else was going to win it along with Higgs. Nothing for the experiments, guess that would have been to unfeasible!

have you seen the author lists on those papers? I think Nobel prizes can only be shared by a few people :P

Three is the maximum, indeed. I wondered whether they would give it to Higgs and the spokespersons of ATLAS and CMS. Probably better this way though.

This may or may not be significant, I almost understood something:

I like that font too and I don't understand it as well.
